- Microneedling uses a handheld device with multiple tiny needles, just like nano needling, but works slightly deeper into the skin. This allows for collagen stimulation which can lead to improved skin texture, visibly smaller pores, diminished fine lines, improved dull skin and improvement of acne scarring. Numbing cream is applied to the skin prior to the procedure. Generally expected to have 12-48 hours of downtime after the procedure. Repeated sessions will improve results; recommended every 4-6 weeks until you see the significant results that you are looking for maintained.
Microneedling with PRP
- Microneedling with PRP (AKA Liquid Gold) Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) boosts the results of the Microneedling procedure. We draw a small amount of your blood, spin it down in a centrifuge, and harvest out specialized cells in a highly condensed plasma. This is then painted on your face, neck or décolleté and microneedled over to superficially inject it into the top layer of your skin (the epidermis). It takes about 3-5 days to fully heal after the treatment, and you can resume normal activities after 2 days. Treatments can be done every 4-6 months and it is recommended to complete 3-6 treatments for optimal results.
